BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir on Tuesday alleged that the government is spreading a story of subversive efforts by party executive committee member Major (retd) Mizanur Rahman through releasing an 'imaginary' audio clip, reports UNB.
In a statement, the BNP leader came up with the allegation.
"We think picking Mizan up at the dead of night was an attempt to make him disappeared by the government. To hush up such a heinous act, it's now released an imaginary audio clip claiming Mizan planned to carry out subversive acts in Gazipur city polls," he said.
Fakhrul said the government has released the 'fabricated' audio clip as part of its damage control efforts since its move to make Mizan disappeared got exposed to people.
He demanded Mizan's immediate release.
The BNP leader alleged that the government is using law enforcers to carry out crimes against humanity.
He warned that the existence of the country's all democratic forces will be at stake if a strong resistance by people of all walks of life is not put up against the dangerous misrule of the current regime.
Earlier in the day, Masudur Rahman, deputy commissioner (media) of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP), told UNB that plainclothes police arrested Mizan from his Gulshan residence early Tuesday on charge of his 'evil efforts' to make Gazipur election controversial.
Tipped off, he said law enforcers raided Mizan's house and arrested him with some electronic devices those he planned to use to make the Gazipur election controversial.
Meanwhile, BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi alleged that law enforcers swopped on Mizan's house and took him away around 3am by breaking open the door.
